Kids learn about climate change from 'Pidlo' the pine tree
MetadataShow full item record
Ibaloy and Kankanaey children here and the provinces of Benguet and Mt. Province have been learning about climate change from “Pidlo,” an old pine tree. Pidlo is a character in a comic book primer developed by the Cordillera Studies Center of the University of the Philippines Baguio to popularize the Climate Change Act of 2009 (Republic Act No. 9729). The comic book explains the concepts of global warming in English, Filipino, Kankanaey, Ibaloy and Ilokano “so grassroots communities understand the ideas better,” said Junley Lazaga, University of the Philippines Baguio literature professor who was part of the translation project.
